What happens if Dr. Meyer is renewed in 2020, at what I believe is age 65. . . .

Dale Meyer will be 73 next year when his term is up.  A five-year renewal would take him to age 78.

Dave Benke and Matt Staneck, you are making way too much out of my passing comment.  It was just based on the fact that his term is up next year.  I have no inside info.  No one is feeding me any info.

Also, Dave Benke, you are impugning the members of the board, accusing them of "shenanigans."  And you are impugning my friend, Shawn Kumm, accusing him of lying.

I do not have a guess as to why.  I just know that it could happen.  It may not.  No one knows for sure.

due to his (supposedly) wanting to retire.

I did not say that either.  Reading Is Fundamental.

the United List has stacked the deck with regents.

This must be a slip-up on your part.  The United List elects no one.  The convention delegates do.  You may want to retreat and backpedal from your original statement.  Otherwise, it sounds like you're disrespecting the convention delegates, like they're a bunch of mind-numbed robots.

No slip-up, no retreat, no backpedal.  Just a guess, as I've said, knowing that his term is up next year.

I'm happy to see Pr. Henrickson backpedaled from his original statement. . . . the same sort of certainty that Pr. Henrickson and "paspase" spoke. . . .

I did not "backpedal," Matt Staneck.  That is your spin.  And I did not speak with "certainty."  Again, that is your attempt at mind-reading.  As I explained, it is just a guess on my part.

Steadfast and Gottesdienst and Henrickson are more than assuming, they're speaking with certainty that he is done. Do they have the same info you do about the board looking to enact revenge against him for letting his name stand for synod president in 2016?

I am not speaking with certainty or with special info.  It is just a guess on my part that he will be replaced.  Also, if the board should choose to not renew his term, one should not assume motive or characterize it as "revenge," if, say, Meyer breaking his word to the board is one factor among several.

why would the chair of the St. Louis Sem board . . . resign from that board in frustration

"who resigned from the board . . . citing commitments to his family and congregation"
[www.csl.edu/2018/11/new-board-of-regents-chairman-member-named/]

"In Kumm's letter to Meyer and the Board of Regents, he wrote: 'Recently I have been pressed to weigh three important areas of responsibility in my life: my vocation as husband and father to my family; the call I have from my congregation in Cody, Wyoming, to serve as her pastor; and my service to the Board of Regents of Concordia Seminary. I have considered many options to try to adequately attend to all three areas at the same time with some semblance of success, but I keep reaching the same conclusion that all three would suffer in some serious way. Though I do not do so lightly, nor do I do so quickly, I resign from the Board of Regents of Concordia Seminary . . .  I realize there are those who may ask what the "real reasons" are behind my resignation. I have stated the reasons above. My love for and vocation to my family, and the call to my congregation are the real reasons. I would ask that people who make inquiries honor those stated reasons as being more than adequate in the kingdom of God.'"
[www.csl.edu/2018/09/regents-chairman-resigns/]

I know the person who resigned from that board.  He is a friend of mine.  We were seminary classmates.  We were seminary roommates.  I know him to be a truthful man.  I believe him when he states what his reasons were, which are contrary to the motivation that Dave Benke insinuates.

So for example if the entire faculty at RF asks the Board of Regents to get a new list of candidates for President, and they ignore that letter - which happened this spring - you have a board operating unhinged from those who work vocationally at that place.  That's a United List problem, in my opinion.

The entire faculty did not ask that.  It was not the entire faculty.  It was a subset thereof, most of whom were not even LCMS members.

In terms of elections, the split was somewhere in the 50s on a percentage basis.  At this time the split has become more in the 80s, meaning the United List is dominating the elections.

I recall at the 2007 convention, when the Kieschnick-COP Machine was in power, the Jesus First list pretty much ran the table on elections.

It really comes down to who gets their people elected as delegates to the convention.

I would expect all pastors to be theologians well versed in the scriptures and with a deep understanding of the confessions.

One should be able to expect that, yes, but I recall a previous LCMS president who declared, "I'm no theologian."  And I believe he was correct!

And if a FW-leaning guy gets appointed, there goes nearly all alumni support for CSL. Good luck with that.

I don't care if it's a "Fort Wayne guy" or a "St. Louis guy," all I care about is that it's a "Confessional guy."  And if it is, there may come a lot more support from St. Louis alumni who want that for CSL.

His notes were written on official postcards from the secretary's office. . . . Had he sent his own personal notes/postcards to the said persons then there isn't a problem as far as I'm concerned.

They were not official postcards from the secretary's office.  Those postcards were clearly different.  These were postcards from Matthew Harrison and labeled as such.
